Houses are too big!

Posted on December 15, 2013 at 7:03 PM Comments comments (144)
We need to reassess the size of our homes. How many of the rooms in your house do you actually use? You have to heat them, clean them, maintain them, pay taxes on them, etc. Why? This is mostly an American thing - having excessively big houses. I hope I hear from people from other countries who can contribute good ideas on how to live in smaller homes.

Track your Home Electric and Gas or Oil consumption

If you just pay the bills and toss them out, you won't know if you're conservation efforts are bearing any fruit. Track your home electric and gas or oil consumption by actual usage and cost. It makes it more fun and challenging especially when you go down year over year - kind of a competition. Share it with your family so they can get excited about it rather than just thinking you're this annoying peron that walks around the house turning off lights and turning the heat down.

Shrink the size of your lawn and conserve 2 bags of fertilizer a year. Replace the lawn with shrubs and rocks.

Increase your gas mileage by 2 MPG

As with all other ideas in this web site, saving 2 of something is the theme of this entry. In this case, we're looking to increase our MPG by 2. This can be done in a variety of ways but the easiest and most obvious way is to go a little slower. Keep an eye on your tachometer - the gauge that says how fast the motor is spinning - measured in Revolutions Per Minute (RPMs). This will be different depending on what car you drive but I find that if I keep the RPMs under 3000, I achieve better gas mileage. To achieve this, I need to keep my speed at about 65.
